    ... I want to try to make Chicken and Dumplings sometime here soon... Only I was thinking of taking out the carrots and celery and replacing them with some Long Grain White Rice...
    *Sigh* Thinking about this makes me hungry [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Barley works well in chicken and dumplings. I don't see any problems with eliminating the things you don't like. For some reason I always seem to add broccoli in mine, and I really don't care much for cooked broccoli. [​IMG] DH likes it though.

    Oh and I only think of recipes as a place to start, or as more of just a suggestion. I can't remember when I last made something straight from a recipe. I like to tweek things a bit. [​IMG] It's seems to work, because the food is really very good at my house.

    Sounds good to me. There are ways of sneaking in vegetables to other foods. You could puree some cauliflower into your chicken and rice. The odds are that once everything is cooked through that nobody will even taste the cauliflower. I fairly sure that it would be like adding some mashed potatoes to the dish. So it would thicken the broth, and yet add the nutrition and fiber. I have also put beets into brownies. They were fabulous.
